Looks like they are showing Pacers when they are referencing Venturas. :?

I confess I have not been a Hodinkee watcher, but for me, they have just lost tons of credibility: An article on the first retailed Electric watch and they show the wrong one?? :roll:

ETA: To their credit, they have made the correction. . . .

A few errors notwithstanding, I'm glad to see a site that normally focuses on modern high-end Swiss watches pay some attention to the past. And of course I appreciate the shout-out for my book. But I see they didn't credit my website for the picture of the Pacers, which was ascribed to someone else.

I winced when I saw the closeup of the 500 movement:

Those contact wires are painfully mangled! And what is up with the shock jewel?? That is not at all correct.
